Valiant Teases You About Going H.A.R.D Corps

Valiant Teases You About Going H.A.R.D Corps

Here's a little more information about a new element entering the fray during Valiant's Harbinger Wars event!



Source: Press Release

As teased last week, Valiant is going to be going H.A.R.D Corps. At first we thought this would be a way for The Flyin' V to beat Vivid Video at its own game by just publishing XXX porn versions of its own properties. Then we realized that these are actualy characters they'll be introducing in their comics. Either way, it's cool. 

Valiant has sent over some info about the H.A.R.D Corps (including a snippet of a conversation Valiant COO Dinesh Shamdasani had with Outhouse progenitor site Newsarama) and some cover artwork for Harbinger Wars #3, the issue that introduces said Corps.

 

HARBINGER WARS #3 Calls in the H.A.R.D. CORPS This June!
 
On June 12th, what happens in Vegas may just destroy the Valiant Universe! 
 
Beginning in Harbinger Wars #3 (of 4) by Joshua DysartDuane Swierczynski, and Clayton Henry, get ready for the first appearance of the all-new, all-dangerous H.A.R.D. Corps – an unpredictable new player in Valiant's first crossover event!
 
Las Vegas is burning, and the situation on the ground is about to go from bad to worse. With the firefight between the Harbinger Foundation, Bloodshot and the Renegades spiraling out of control, Project Rising Spirit has only one desperate option left to prevent the conflagration from spreading. It's time to bring the deep-black weapons development project – designation H.A.R.D. Corps – back online. But are they a precision strike or a sledgehammer? And can they be trusted with the enormous power they wield? 
 
"These guys are dangerous. They are not covert operators and they are not stealthy. When it comes to a precarious situation like the Harbinger Wars, they are a weapon of last resort," Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani told Newsarama. "We keep saying internally that the H.A.R.D. Corps are not a scalpel. They're more like a landmine. Dropping them into the mix of Harbinger Wars is going to ensure things are explosive – and, rest assured, they are not an element that Bloodshot, Harada, or the Renegades will be anticipating."
 
The Harbinger Wars hit their boiling point on June 12th as the H.A.R.D. Corps charge out of the line of fire and into the Valiant Universe! Don't miss their devastating first assault in Harbinger Wars #3 (of 4)  – featuring covers by Patrick Zircher, Trevor Hairsine, and Khari Evans!
